The Sarah Project follows Sarah, a 16 year-old at the time of the project.
Sarah has DiGeorge syndrome, a genetic disorder caused by a defect in chromosome 22. The effects of DiGeorge syndrome vary among those diagnosed. For Sarah, it's manifested in heart and palate issues, as well as a cataract in her right eye. Sarah also works daily to improve her communication skills as she has limited speech and hearing.
The project documents a day-in-the-life for Sarah, which is impacted greatly and is largley made possible by the strong support network that is her family.
